Foraged Winter Bouquet

Atlantic ivy winter bouquet

One vase in water holds the Ivy (Hedera sp.) with leaves and all. Another dry, with only the fruits. An experiment with a foraged bouquet from outside of Susan's studio at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where the ivy had nearly reached the top of a London Plane tree. Two days later, the leaves in water seem to have held up well. I guess that's not surprising for a plant widely considered to be an especially agressive species in our country. An interesting form of entertainment this cold icy winter in New York City or a rather desperate one? I guess it's how you choose to look at it.
